Product Care + Cleaning Advice

Take care of your jewellery and it will care for you

General Care

It is a good idea to remove jewellery before going to bed, showering or participating in physical activity. Exposure to chemicals and conditions will, over time, damage any jewellery. This includes, but is not limited to perspiration, perfumes, cleaning agents, chlorine, saltwater, and silver polish. Treat your jewellery with the utmost care and it will continue to care for you.

General Cleaning

The best way to clean jewellery is with a small amount of mild soap and lukewarm water. Use a small, soft toothbrush to clean your jewellery. Toothbrushes are ideal for cleaning jewellery with intricate details, which can otherwise be difficult to clean. If the dirt is hard to remove, soak the jewellery in clean water unless you are cleaning cultured pearls.

A silver-polishing cloth will bring out the shine of sterling silver but will not remove scratches.

Cleaning Rose Gold + 14k Gold Plated

Rose gold and gold-coated jewellery are coated using processes that electroplate chemically liquified mixes of copper and 14k gold to create rose gold and 14k gold to coat a sterling silver core. Use the same general cleaning method as described above.

Here is a little information on gold, rose gold and coatings, otherwise known as plated. Because even 18 Karat gold itself is relatively soft, nickel, zinc, copper and rhodium are combined with gold to make a 14 Karat coating, which is actually 58.3% gold. There is no such thing as pure rose gold as it is made from a mix of gold and copper to give it that gorgeous colour.

Do not use silver polishing liquids and silver dips. Ultrasonic cleaning and tumblers should always be avoided with rose gold and gold-plated (coated) jewellery. The secret to keeping jewellery looking gorgeous is care, not repair.

Storing

Jewellery should be stored away from natural sunlight and heat, in a protective (lined) jewellery box or a tarnish-resistant pouch Zip lock bags made of Mylar or polyethylene that your purchases arrive in are an excellent way to store your jewellery purchased from ffyf.store.

Baked Enamel Colors

Baked enamel colourings are made of glass-free compounds and are extremely durable. Nevertheless, follow the same cleaning methods as above.
